Our Christmas tree makes me happy. I don't know what it is about it exactly that I like so much, the look of it or the idea of it, but it just makes things a little merrier in the house.
Maybe it's the simple idea of bring a little of the magic of the outdoors inside. There is a TREE inside my house. That in of itself is weird and wonderful.
On top of that, there are all these pretty colors and sparkly lights spread throughout its branches.
And finally, once you've taken in all the wonder of the tree itself your eyes slowly travel down to where mysterious boxes wrapped and tied in pretty bows are just waiting to be opened.
How fun is that?
